Los Angeles Times:  “Stepping up the Obama administration’s opposition to Proposition 19, the nation’s top law enforcement official [U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder] promised to ‘vigorously enforce’ federal drug laws against Californians who grow or sell marijuana for recreational use even if voters pass the legalization measure. . . . Holder wrote [in a letter to the Drug Enforcement Agency], ‘Let me state clearly that the Department of Justice strongly opposes Proposition 19. If passed, this legislation will greatly complicate federal drug enforcement efforts to the detriment of our citizens’.”
